Sleek and powerful

The TS-228A features a Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, and a 1GbE network port to provide performance of up to 112 MB/s. If you decide to encrypt your files with AES-256 encryption, the performance is still an impressive 112 MB/s - allowing you to ensure your privacy without sacrificing performance.

Lightweight and easy installation

The minimal and streamlined design of TS-228A makes it fit easily into your home. Featuring a unique, tool-less design, setting up the TS-228A is so easy that it doesn't even need a screwdriver! 

A single NAS for cross-platform, multi-device file access and sharing

The TS-228A acts as a file exchange platform to simplify your file management across devices, and is compatible with a wide range of computers and devices (including Windows, macOS and more). For mobile devices, the Qsync suite can be installed for synchronizing and sharing files across PC, phones and tablets. 

Backing up data is as easy as 1-2-3

By practicing safe computer habits and with the TS-228A handling your file backup tasks, you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe. QNAP's NetBak Replicator backup utility can assist in backing up/restoring files on a Windows® PC while macOS users can set up Time Machine to save to the TS-228A.

High-end snapshot protection for files and data

QNAP has extended support for file snapshot protection to our entry-level NAS. Snapshots were originally only possible on high-end business systems, and they allow you to record the system state and data content at a single point of time. With snapshot protection, if you accidentally delete/modify files, or if any hard disks should fail or your network is infected with malware, you can quickly restore files to a previous point in time.

Back up your files with the versatile Hybrid Backup Sync

With the TS-228A, complicated backup settings are history. You can now use Hybrid Backup Sync as your single portal for backing up, restoring, and syncing files. Supporting local NAS, remote NAS and cloud storage as both origins and destinations, you can combine multiple backup tasks to provide optimal protection for your data. Other features include scheduling, versioning, data compression and multiple-layer encryption, so your files are kept safe and sound.

360-degree panorama photo/video

Good news for adventurers! QNAP NAS now supports the popular 360-degree panorama recording format! By clicking the 360-degree panorama display button, your photos and videos will be displayed as 360-degree panorama media files. 

Everything you need for the perfect multimedia experience

The all-new QVHelper can help you stream and decode multimedia files to media players on your computer and/or mobile devices. The Qfinder Pro utility can also save time and NAS system resources by transcoding media files locally on your PC before uploading them to the NAS. With the TS-228A your audiovisual experience is smoother and more convenient with useful apps and everything you need to enjoy great multimedia entertainment.
